The Open Hand Monument is a symbolic structure located in the Indian Union Territory of Chandigarh. Designed by the renowned architect Le Corbusier, it is the emblem of the Government of Chandigarh and symbolizes "the hand to give and the hand to take, peace and prosperity, and the unity of mankind". The largest example of Le Corbusier's many Open Hand sculptures and was designed to rotate in the wind.
Growing up in Chandigarh, I always have seen a flying bird in The Open Hand, soaring high above the Shivalik Mountain Range, on whose footsteps 'City Beautiful", Chandigarh is located. It always symbolized freedom to me, freedom to be who I am, what I can do.
With this design, I have tried to relive my childhood.
